3:00am
good morning everyone. today is saturday, july 6th. i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us so early. we start with a fox news alert. he's been hiding out in russia. now edward snowden may be making his next move after receiving asylum offers from two separate countries. who will step in? we'll tell you. and welcome to part-time america. well, the white house spins the stagnant unemployment numbers as a good thing, we'll show you the numbers they don't want you to see. >> and facelifts for fido. dog lovers spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to get their pooch plastic surgery. a little too much or in the name of love? see some of them really sad.
3:01am
you know what i'm saying? they need it. "fox and friends" hour one starts right now. good morning everyone. thank you so much for joining us. we can see the temperature when we take this shot. in the right-hand corner. >> it's 79 degrees. 81 degrees. >> it just went up. >> hotter. >> in that secondt jumped two degrees. that's how hot it is. >> at 4:00 in the morning in midtown, it was 77 degrees. >> you know that because you were up exercising? >> no. i saw it on a display. 77 degrees. >> oh, boy. >> shocking. >> going to be a scorcher. >> we begin with a fox news alert. edward know den finds friends in nicaragua and venezuela.
3:02am
both countries offered snowden asylum, apparently. the question is how will he get there? we have the latest on this from molly. >> tucker, alisyn, clayton, we don't know if there are conditions on the offer. but nicolas maduro said nsa leaker edward snowden can live out his days in the homeland of hugo chavez who was a frequent critic of the u.s. maduro made the remarks yesterday which was venezuela's independence day. there are no direct flights from moscow where snowden is believed to be holed up to venezuela. but it's possible he could fly through cuba to get there. maduro said that vein za ha had decided to offer humanitarian asylum to snowden so he can live without persecution from the empire. meaning the u.s. there. >> the offer comes one day after leftist south american leaders including maduro gathered to protest the rerouting of the
3:03am
bolivian president's plane over europe, including an unscheduled stop in austria, because european governments received information. they won't say if it's from the u.s. that snowden was on that plane. snowden also may get an offer of asylum from nicaragua. he said if circumstances allow it, snowden may be able to come live there. but he did not specify what those conditions could be. ortega says the nicaraguan embassy in moscow received the request for asylum and is studying it. back to you in new york. >> thank you, molly. in d.c. this morning. >> that's a big story. another big story we're following is the chaos in egypt at this hour. of course, yesterday we told you about the crackdown upon the muslim brotherhood as members of the military cracked down on hundreds of morsi supporters and protesters out there in tahrir square and now violence clashes, some saying this could descend into civil war at this hour.
3:04am
>> at least 30 people have been killed. it's basically a military coup. though the government, our president can't call it that for technical reasons. but it obviously puts the united states in a predicament because we are now in a position of not supporting morsi, the first democratically elected president of egypt. though many question that election. supporting instead the military. it's just a strange position for the united states to figure out how to navigate and what to do in egypt. general goldberg talked about what the administration has done wrong thus far. >> i think that this is destined to get much more out of hand before it gets under control. we're in a very strange place where at least from our perspective, the small d democrats are essentially the bad guys. and how barack obama or how circumstances got us into a
3:05am
position where we're seen as both the supporters of hosni mubarak's regime and of the muslim brotherhood, it's a really interesting move. i think we're going to spend a long time trying to figure out how we got into this mess. >> it's all bad. here's part of the way we got into the mess. by believing that because someone is democratically elected they will bring greater freedom to a country. hamas was democratically elected, morsi was. you could see a scenario under which a military regime provides more freedom to the people of egypt. >> it's hard -- >> for the last 15 years, you can say that just because a country has elections doesn't mean it's free. we have learned that. >> that's a great point. not to make the direct relationship between the two. the people always get in trouble when they do so. hitler was democratically elected. you go through the process, people go to the ballot box and say this is the guy we want, the party we want, we want the nazi party.
3:06am
a few years into it, they realize what they've got in their hands. the country was descending, the economy in tatters, you were not bringing in the other side and the military had to take over. >> it's hard to know what our president and the obama administration should be doing while all of this unfolds in egypt. we can tell what you they have been doing for the past 24 hours. that is having a lot of leisure time. president obama took to golfing. as you know, he often relaxes on the golf course. vice president biden loves delaware. he loves delaware beaches. and secretary kerry, interestingly, though his staff said that he was hard at work in the office, was actually on his yacht. >> his $7 million yacht. which he keeps, by the way in rhode island. not in his home state of massachusetts in order to avoid a half million dollars in sales tax that he would have to pay near his nantucket home or boston home. he's a tax evader as well as an
3:07am
elitist on his $7 million yacht. another man of the people. but, look, when these guys are there, does anyone think when the president is at camp david or playing golf, he's not actually working? >> if i had a $7 million yacht, i am out of touch. >> i disconnect. >> when you're having tea and crumpets you are totally cut off. the president says he'll have his blackberry with him, his briefing book in hand and working around the clock. when the president goes on vacation, he's never on vacation. >> of course. i think it's silly when people say he has to be in the white house. we can work from anywhere nowadays. >> even on a yacht. >> apparently. >> high-level democratic office holder should not have a $7 million yacht. you can't get up and demagog everything and we're on your side for working families. be quiet and then you inherited money to buy a $7 million yacht. not a louchltd you can't do that. >> i disagree. i think you can have a yacht, but you can't then try to park it someplace -- >> that's a dingy.
3:08am
>> he has a little dingy. you can't then park it someplace else and evade taxes if you believe that everyone should pay higher taxes. >> the phrase working families any more. you're not allowed to do that. it suggests anybody who doesn't buy into your stupid political ideas doesn't actually work for a living when you're living off of someone else's inherited money to buy your $7 million yacht and lecturing me that i don't work enough and pay enough taxes to do my fair share. i'm not a working family. don't ever say that again. >> you're referring to the teresa hines kerry, the heinz ketchup. it's all about perception. when egypt is in chaos and 12 days, secretary kerry spends over in the middle east and then comes back as this country descends into a civil war and then is seen on the yacht where his staff said it didn't happen and then had to come back and say actually it did happen. >> just a working family. >> again that was his dingy that we were looking at there. >> as you pointed out, little
3:09am
dingy. >> not on the yacht. i need more photographic evidence. here are your headlines at this hour. at the emotional end of the week at the george zimmerman trial, a family clashed over that controversial 911 call. both trayvon martin's mother and george zimmerman's mother said it was their own sons screaming in the background. >> you think he's yelling help? >> yes. >> ma'am, that screaming or yelling, do you recognize that? >> yes. >> and who do you recognize that to be, ma'am? >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> whose voice was that? >> my son george. >> are you certain of that? >> because he's my son. >> a medical examiner also testified that martin was shot through the heart and may have lived up to ten minutes after the altercation. prosecutors rested their case and the defense asked the judge to dismiss the trial but she refused.
3:10am
paula deen did not have enough problems, a man in new york charged with blackmailing her for $250,000. the fbi says this man claimed he would go public with statements dean made about her use of racial slurs unless he was paid. the celebrity chef has been fired by several companies in recent weeks after she admitted to using racial slurs in the past. the suspect contacted deen's lawyer with demands who then contacted the feds. police are looking into what caused this terrifying independence day disaster. >> oh! oh, my god. this happened in simi valley, california. the explosion injured 39 people, ranging from 17 months old to 79 years old. three year children are still being treated for burns and shrapnel wounds it appears to have been an accident and the company that set up the
3:11am
fireworks has an excellent safety track record. those are your headlines. a look at the forecast with rick. we were trying to give the forecast earlier without our help. it went from 79 to 81 degrees in two second. >> hot. >> well, listen, at least it's nice and cool in here. >> yeah. >> can we stay in here all day? >> hopefully. it is really bad outside. been hot on the eastern seaboard. already 78 in new york. 74 in raleigh. it's not the heat. it is the humidity. out across the west, you're still warm but much drier, although the humidity is creeping up a little bit as well. take a look at what's happened across the east. it's mostly towards the southeast. you see this moisture coming in, especially towards southern florida. areas have seen over 20 inches of rain in the last three days. those are the totals you see with a big tropical storm come in. there's no significant storm, but 20 inches of rain will cause flooding anywhere you get that kind of rain. that's what what we've seen, especially the panhandle of
3:12am
florida. we'll see more today and tomorrow as this similar pattern is stuck for another couple days. get ready across the southeast. towards the northeast also heat advisories in effect. it's going to feel around 100 degrees today and tomorrow, guys. it's just hot. go to the beach if you can. >> okay. will do. i'll say -- rick's orders. >> thank you, rick. let's talk about the jobs numbers. people are diving into the jobs numbers saying they look pretty good, right? 7.6%.ught that it added a number of jobs, 30,000 more than analysts expected. when you start to dive into the numbers a bit, you start to realize what an anemic recovery this has been. at those same jobs numbers, it would take another four years to get back to where we need to be to get out of the the hole we're in. seems like it's nice. as mentioned yesterday, it's anemic. we dive into the numbers, you find out more and more people are working part-time, less full-time than ever before. >> the number on the screen is a dubious distinction. it's been 54 months we've been
3:13am
at 7.5, the rate of unemployment or higher obviously. that's a long time. 54 months. >> here's the number that jumps out at me. 47% of americans, only 47%, less than half, have full-time jobs now. i mean -- the unemployment numbers are tricky washington number. it's totally fake number and there's a bipartisan conspiracy to lie about what it really is. but the number you look at is what percentage of the workforce is actually working. it's really low. >> right. so you're seeing this tick up in part-time employment. is that because of summer jobs? to your point, we don't know. the numbers are also revised. now we see the revisions of the april and may numbers. >> right. when we have these june numbers come out and everyone gets excited about them, two months from now they'll revise the june numbers. >> here's a number that is totally straightforward. what percentage of the population has a full-time job? that's pretty simple. >> right. >> it's not what percent just looking or stopped looking or the criteria that the federal
3:14am
government uses. what percentage has a -- 47%. less than half. >> we'll tell you how many americans have part-time jobs and what the theory is why they have part-time jobs. when we come back, caught on camera, a true operate to the tackles a would-be robber who escaped from prison. the details on this straight ahead. ♪ when you experience something great, you want to share it. with everyone. that's why more customers recommend verizon, america's largest 4g lte network. i don't know. how did you get here? [ speaking in russian ] look, look, look... you probably want to get away as much as we do.
3:15am
with priceline express deals, you can get a fabulous hotel without bidding. think of the rubles you'll save. with one touch, fun in the sun. i like fun. well, that went exactly as i planned.. really? now save up to 60% during summer hotel sale. use code "summer" on priceline's. but, dad, you've got...

3:17am
i thought that i was clayton for a second. >> it happens all the time. >> take it away. >> yesterday the prosecution rests their case in the george zimmerman trial and the defense began. interestingly, both ended and started in a similar way. watch. >> ma'am, that screaming or yelling, do you recognize that? >> yes. >> and who do you recognize that to be, ma'am? >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> do you know whose voice that was screaming in the background? >> yes, sir. >> and whose voice was that? >> my son george. >> and are you certain of that? >> because he's my son. >> so what can we expect from zimmerman's defense team now. joining us is trial attorney kirs continue wilson. thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> we heard both moms, trayvon martin's mother and george zimmerman's mother saying they believed it was their son screaming for help on the 911 call. what's the jury supposed do with that? >> the jury, i'm sure, is scratching their head. the prosecution case typically
3:18am
going into the close of a trial. the prosecution has the momentum and the state should be in a really strong position at the end of the evidence with their case. in the zimmerman case, it's as clear as mud right now. they end with two mothers both saying it's their sons heard on the 911 tape. >> prosecution doesn't really have the momentum. you believe the defense. this seems like an odd turn. everyone thought the prosecution had it locked up. >> it seems like an odd turn. there were some weird decisions made by the prosecution during the case. they played some of the conversations between zimmerman and the police. that was sort of an odd decision. it enabled him not to take the stand before he had the potential to take the stand in order to lay the foundation for his self-defense. now they have played the tapes where he's interviewed and there's no cross-examination. so his story comes in, we end with the two mothers saying both of them are my son and now we have the defense picking up the ball and starting to run with it. they're really in a good position at this point in time. >> but at the end of the day,
3:19am
can the prosecution in closing arguments make the point that if george zimmerman hadn't followed trayvon martin that night, hadn't disregarded what police told him to do, which was stand back, not follow him, that trayvon martin would still be alive? >> that's one of their strongest arguments to make at this point. the fact of the matter is, we still have this testimony, t lighter skinned male on the ground on top of him. that supports the self-defense theory that the defense is putting forward. >> we got to go. what can the defense do heading into the week? >> what the defense needs to do is keep the momentum moving and they need to really personalize george zimmerman. even if the legal standards haven't been met, the jury is sitting there and they've seen trayvon martin's family and they want someone to be healld accountable. they want to see george zimmerman as a person. kirsten wilson, thanks for your insight. great to have you. coming up on the show, a consumer high alert that that
3:20am

both sides in egypt. so is the obama administration leading from mind in the middle east. a retired u.s. marine corps lieutenant colonel, a genuine war hero, military analyst and all around wise person. he joins us now from washington. bill, thanks for coming on this early saturday morning. >> good morning. >> is this good for the united states or is it bad? what is our strategy in egypt. >> somewhere between the golf course and the yacht we're still trying to figure out. when we helped oust mubarak, one of our friends throughout the middle east. i'm not saying he was the greatest guy, tucker. but we know he's a man who did our bidding. we were happy, we ushered in morsi, all kinds of jubilation in this town and the fact is that morsi and the muslim brotherhood were democratically elected but anything but democratic. over the course of the last year, we've allowed them, stood back and watched while they essentially changed their constitution, pushed it more to
3:26am
the right, suppressed women, suppressed minorities, suppressed the media. all of these things helping contribute to the people wanting him out of there. morsi trying to get himself instilled for a longer period of time. we've watched that. all the anti-morsi people say where is the united states when this is going on inside our country and now that morsi is overthrown in four days, all of morsi's supporters saying, wait a minute, where is the united states making sure our guy stayed in power? i think it's pretty clear that our strategy in -- goals and prospects in egypt have been really kind of haphazard at best, tucker. the question really then is what do we do now? the president has made some quips about the military over there. the fact is the military is the most stable institution in egypt. they've not tried to grab power. they didn't assassinate or kill morsi as any real coup would do or have him exiled somewhere. you don't see military people standing on every corner.
3:27am
they haven't declared martial law. they've tried to be the one institution to provide stability while egypt gets back on its feet. >> bill, quickly, can we make a policy going forward that the u.s. government will never support the muslim brotherhood? is that too hard to just come out and say that? >> tucker, we ought to be saying that. anybody not paying attention knows the muslim brotherhood is a long way from being our friends. we have plenty of concerns about them being in power in syria too. the fact of the matter is, here at this state department, we're happy to support anybody who hangs a d on -- this town needs to be paying a lot of attention to who the muslim brotherhood is. incidentally, they've got insidious efforts going on in this town all the time. who they are, what they want and long-term objectives do not sort with those of the united states of america. >> it's idiotic.
3:28am
thank you for your insight colonel bill cowen and clear description of what we're doing and not doing. >> thanks, tucker. it could be the best pitch ever thrown. who is on that mound? we'll tell you. plus, the price of beauty for your dog. why some dog owners are paying big bucks for facelifts and tummy tucks. needless to say, this is a real story. we've got details. what makes your family smile? backflips and cartwheels. love, warmth. here, try this. backflips and camm, ok!s.

time for your shot of the morning this morning. you have a dog scooter. dog-powered scooters. >> finally. >> it's about time. they serve multiple purposes. they give your dog exercise and give you a ride at the same time. you don't have to do any work. >> why didn't i think of this? >> how do you stop it? how do you slow down the dog powered scooter? i'm totally for this. >> that might be a design flaw. >> the worst part is you have to release a cat first so it chases the cat or a rabbit or a squirrel. >> 600 bucks for one of these. seems like a present i good deal. >> the dog darting right into traffic with that thing.
3:32am
>> going off. if you've had a dog on a leash, as soon as it sees a squirrel, yanking your arm one way. >> if your dog darted into traffic, it might then need some plastic surgery. today we're talking about all of the procedures that people are now paying for, for their pets. >> dog lovers are actually now spending, according to a new bit of research out about plastic surgery, they're spending upwards of $10,000 on plastic surgery. $10,000 to get facelifts, tummy tucks, teeth straightening procedures for dogs. >> uh-huh. >> and eyebrow corrections. >> i know the obvious position on this is, this is appalling, it's cruel, it's a sign of affluence gone haywire, the country has been too rich too long. let me put one word out there in favor of this. there are some dogs clearly who are embarrassed by the way they look. >> i'm serious. whenever we shave our dogs for the summer, they won't even go outside. >> they're so embarrassed.
3:33am
>> they're full of self-loathing. dogs are aware of their appearance. >> maybe we wait for new hair growth. >> okay. can we see some of these. this dog had plastic surgery on its ears because the owner, see how the top part of the ear folds over. the owner thought that was embarrassing. got them straightened. >> as a guy who suffers from big ear syndrome, i can appreciate the surgery for this. >> does he look better or just surprised? >> he looks very surprised. >> looks kind of like batman. the upper east side of batman. >> by the way, they are paying for botox if your pet is too wrinkly. >> do we have a before of any of these? no? we're going to mention this. it's in the story. i am not making this up. silicon testicle implants. >> they're called newt cals. i once in my cable television career interviewed the inventor of it. his point was i thought it
3:34am
valid. dogs get fixed, fixed. you don't like to think of that, castrated and they miss it. and they know they look ridiculous and so it makes it possible for them to go to the park again with dignity. you're laughing. but i think this is real. i know it's early for this. i'm sorry. >> i hope my 6-year-old son is watching because he needs a new euphemism for newt cals. you're welcome, nate. >> that is going to be borrowed. i'm assuming tucker, you had to choose an opposite point of view that you don't really believe that? >> i don't know. dog plastic surgery, i'm open-minded. i'm from california. maybe. it's okay. >> i think plastic surgery hurts from what i hear. >> it does. >> from what he hears. >> that's bad news. >> he just turned 70, by the way. you have no firsthand knowledge of it. >> i have no idea. let's take a look at the weather maps, guys. we have hot weather across parts of the east. today's highs temperatures, not just the heat but also the
3:35am
humidity. it's going to be very sticky again today. places from richmond, virginia, through washington, d.c. up towards philadelphia and new york and boston, everybody into the 90s. it's going to be feeling closer to the 100s. tomorrow will same story. monday, temps drop down. the rain returns, unfortunately. the rain that we had the last number of days, that pattern kind of gets back with us for this next week. so no big relief across the northeast, unfortunately, over the next number of days. today you're hot, everybody looking at the warm temperatures. down across the southeast, unfortunately, just more rain. that same pattern we've been in continues here across the southeast and more flooding concerns across the panhandling of florida, throughout much of alabama in towards tennessee and kentucky again. out across the south, though, places like texas and oklahoma, just very high temperatures into the upper 90s again. up across the northern plains, we're going to see a few showers move in across parts of north dakota and minnesota. those are morning showers. temps again hot and sticky. the temps getting above average
3:36am
the next few days. where it's been so hot across parts of the west, we're going to cool down a little bit. not really cool down, but the temps are going to moderate a little bit. we're getting some pretty good monsoon storms out there. some of those thunderstorms could -- the lightning could start a few fires. we're getting enough rain that it's moistening the ground a little bit. that's some good news. >> guys, back to you inside. >> thanks so much, rick. let's get to your headlines talk about what's happening at this hour. nearly 12 years after the 9/11 attack, some closure for the family of jeffrey walz, a medical examiner identifying the new york firefighter's remains just friday. walz was inside tower one of the world trade center when it collapsed. his name is etched at a new york city's 9/11 memorial. his family says they feel the positive identification is a sign that jeffrey is looking down on them. more than 1,000 victims of the 9/11 attacks still remain unidentified. and starting monday, strict new abortion restrictions go

3:39am
mr. scruggs, the idea as i understand it is to get pictures of all 58,000? i'm sort of amazed there aren't pictures. how many have you gathered and how have you done it? >> we've gotten a total of 32,000 out of the 58,000 and basically, we get volunteers throughout the country to get these. we've had really good luck in texas, governor perry and a lot of the mexican-american community there, gotten just about all the photos and throughout the kcountry, people are helping. >> there to remember the vietnam war and those who pay the ultimate sacrifice there. >> good morning. our generation of veterans in the united states has really made the memorial a hallowed ground. it is a sacred place to americans for the loss of our
3:40am
sons and daughters. but it's more than a place. it's also a time where we can be together with our fellow veterans and talk about and relive some memories and some much our experiences in vietnam. a lot of the veterans use it as a form of closure and help them with some of the psychological problems that they've encountered upon their return. >> so if the loved ones of any of those 58,000 fallen soldiers are watching the show this morning, where should they send photographs, mr. scruggs and where will the photographs be displayed? >> build the center.org is our websi website. this is for the education center at the wall. this is a place that will really elevate the idea of service, service to your country, service to your community, using these photographs in a really positive way. we want people, citizens to be involved and we think this is a great legacy for those who have given their lives. not only in vietnam but other
3:41am
wars as well. and the photographs of the soldiers from iraq and afghanistan will also be displayed in a very positive and fulfilling manner. >> captain, as we let you guys go this morning, what do you think it means to the younger generation growing up who was not alive during the vietnam war to see this and be a part of american history? what does it say to those folks? >> i think it's extremely important for a few reasons. back in 1975, there was a study done that determined that basically all-american adults, about 150 american citizens knew someone by name that had died in vietnam. whether it was someone from their town, their school, their college, but they knew them by name. today sadly, in some history books, the vietnam war is not even mentioned. the 58,000 americans who died there. >> james scruggs, memorial fund and captain of the navy, we

while the obama administration was ready to install health care -- >> starting on october 1st, you can get a better deal. if you're a small business providing health insurance to employees, you can get a better deal through these exchanges. >> as of this week, the employer mandate is delayed now until 2015 and with it, the plan to penalize people that failed to offer benefits. the penalties would have brought $10 billion into the government but now employers are off the hook and the feds will not see that money. here now is jolene kent. >> the government was counting on this $10 billion in penalties that employers would have had to have paid if they didn't offer health insurance and now they don't have to pay that this year. >> essentially what's happened is last week basically, white house said, okay, we're going to
3:47am
be delaying this employer mandate. so essentially the $2000 per person, per employee that would have been paid as a penalty if countries did not implement in time for january 2014 is not going to be there anymore. in fact, we have a chart to show you. the cvo estimates that $10 billion will be lost. now, this is something the treasury was supposed to receive over 2014 to receive for 2015. it actually is in the budget. you can see highlighted there, there's a negative 10 for 2015 they were supposed to receive. it's unclear whether or not they were actually counting on this money to actually come in. but it certainly is quite controversial because already we know the employer mandate is controversial among the business community, right? so now they're not going to be receiving this money. >> could you argue that it's better for employers and, therefore, better for the economy that they're not going to have to pay the penalties? >> i think critics are certainly saying it's a complicated loss to implement. it's better maybe for them. in the short term. but eventually, this is going to
3:48am
be in place and so the white house has come back and said in a blog post saying that they have heard that this is a very complicated situation. in fact, we have a blog post to show you right now that we've heard the concerns about the complexity and the requirements and the need for more time to implement these employer mandates effectively. they've come out and said we're trying to make it right for the employers. but the employers are saying, a lot of employers are saying this is quite expensive and quite complicated. so the republicans of course, are going to say this is showing it's ineffective and the democrats are saying they need more time. >> here's part of the issue. the robbing peter to pay paul aspect of the federal government, which is if they were counting on that $10 billion in penalties, we do know that the government plans to subsidize low-income families that don't have health care. where will they get that money if they're not taking in more revenue? >> right. important that ated question. we find that out. essentially, we're not sure if that $10 billion was actually
3:49am
accounted for, if they're expecting that money. the report that came out was from last month. so it's a projection. whether or not the irs and the treasury were counting on that $10 billion is unclear. i have a feeling because they budgeted it for it, it's part of the equation. >> it sounds like it is. now they will have some sort of hold because it won't be implement implemented. >> the revenue going into 2023, the health care law, it's all going to be delayed. there will be impacts. >> joe ling kent, thank you for explaining that to us. >> great to see you. could goofing off at work actually be the secret to success? finally, clayton is explained. >> new research in why taking breaks can be beneficial to you. do you need a kitchen makeover? >> you guys get depressed when you come in here? >> very. >> good. well, let's get a new kitchen. >> our next guest is crashing kitchens. the host of kitchen crashers is

4:02am
clashes have left people dead. we're live in cairo with the latest on what is happening at this hour. >> tucker, it is an absolutely brutal and intense night of fighting not only here in cairo but just across all of egypt, every city in this country seems to have had some type of violence. yesterday the muslim brotherhood leadership called for peaceful protests. that quickly turned to violent protests as members of the muslim brotherhood and pro-morsi supporters tried to move near the republican guard headquarters where we believe mohammed morsi, now deposed president is being held by the egyptian military. the egyptian military began opening fire killing and injuring several people. then it erupted here. we saw hand-to-hand fighting, clashes all along the main streets here in egypt. it was primitive at times with sticks and stones and
4:03am
very basic fighting here. it was intense, it was angry, and it boiled over to other parts of not only cairo but across the entire country. 30 people at least have been killed. hundreds more injured. we think those numbers will likely go up. today we are hearing that the new interim president, mansour is going to meet with the military commanders here. one thing we're not hearing is any discussions going on between the muslim brotherhood leadership and the new government, anger and the sort of misery that is being projected on this country right now seems to be only intensifying. there are no negotiations, no talks. neither side seems willing to talk to the other side. both sides are digging in. we are hearing of more protests in the coming day and probably even through tonight. we expect more violence tonight, tucker. >>tucker: thanks. >>alisyn: connor, be careful out there. there is still much violence in cairo, throughout egypt at the
4:04am
moment. and other reporters have been hurt. thanks for that update. we'll check back in with you. >> all concerns whether or not this country could be descended into civil war as the muslim brotherhood individuals are being rounded up into a military crackdown. those who are supporting president morsi behind bars at this hour. remember, the united states, the obama administration reached out to president morsi in the hours after this coup -- excuse me to the military in the hours after this coup, do not crack down on these individuals. this could descend into civil war if this happened. they didn't listen to us on a number of occasions and this is the last time. >>alisyn: what should the u.s. policies be? last night a debate on where we are and where the president has slated so far. >> i think this is destined to get much more out of hand before it gets under control. we're in a very strange
4:05am
place where at least from our perspective, the democrats, the small "d" democrats are also essentially the bad guys. how barack obama got us, or how circumstances got us into a position where we are seen as both the supporters of hosni mubarak's regime and of the muslim brotherhood, it's a really interesting move, and i think we're going to spend a long time trying to figure out how we got into this mess. >> that's for sure. do you know what the secretary of state was doing last week? this week he was on his yacht famously when this coup happened. do you know what he was doing last week? he was in israel lecturing the israelis about treating the palestinians better. wherever you stand on that question, that is not the central story of the moment. the central story is egypt. it's the largest arab country, at the very heart of the islamic world globally. and it is in chaos. and we supported the wrong side, the muslim brotherhood, a bunch of lunatics.
4:06am
now the country is falling apart. what's our policy? we don't appear to have one. >>clayton: we didn't have one back then as hosni mubarak was faltering. you remember hillary clinton saying he's an ally. then he falls and we align ourselves with the government of the muslim brotherhood or the relationship with the muslim brotherhood. now you saw the protesters with the signs saying president obama to blame. join with the muslim brotherhood supporting islamists. >>alisyn: we give more than $1 billion in aid to egypt every year. charles krauthammer made an interesting point. he said nothing of the future of this revolution is going to depend on what happens in washington. that's an interesting point. hard to say what the president could do at this point. this is unfolding. what can president obama do to turn the tide? >>tucker: this is highly complex, i agree, and i think any adult would admit that. here's the way to think about it. american foreign policy ought to be determined by
4:07am
what's best for america. period. full stofplt that is the most important -- in fact, that is the only criteria. the idea we who wins a, quote, free and fair election. does that mean hamas, the muslim brotherhood in egypt? no. these are bad people who oppress their populations and hate us. we should not be for that. >>alisyn: you can find us on twitter. we'd love to hear from you. let's get to the rest of your headlines. we have a fox news alert. we learned a train derailed in canada forcing a major fire, as you can see. police say the train was carrying crude oil to quebec. witnesses reported hearing several explosions, then massive flames. fire fighters from several cities are working to put out the fire at this hour. no word of any casualties at this time. we will bring you more as we get it. another fox news alert. because n.s.a. leaker edward snowden being offered asylum in nicarauga and then as well, we

mohammed salahi penned his memoirs in captivity. full of brutal activities in torture. he will reportedly be the only prisoner still inside to tell his story in print. those are your headlines. >> let's check in with rick for a look at the forecast. >> we finally have rain across parts of the west. it's been this rain across areas of the east that is causing all kinds of problems. the setup is like this. this area of high pressure, the bermuda high depends on where it is located. the circulation will continue to bring moisture into this. this is strong right now close to the east coast, causing the jet stream to get stuck here. it pulls all this moisture here and causing big-time flooding. look at some of the images coming out of south carolina from pickens county, south carolina, on the border of north carolina and south carolina. mudslide causing that road to break apart.
4:10am
they have had to close the highway. crews from north carolina and south carolina trying to work on this rapidly to see if they can get this road back open. but so much rain falling in such a short time there, major flooding going on there. we have big-time flooding going on across parts of florida, alabama, tennessee and parts of kentucky. we're going to continue to see that because this pattern will be stuck for at least another two to three changes. no big khraepbgz. some of these -- no big changes. some of these sports have seen up to 20 inches of rain. >> in fox studio we're very serious and never goof off. >>alisyn: work, work, work. >> for example, look at our green room right now. >>alisyn: those are our interns. >> very serious work. there is a new body of research out showing goofing off like our interns are doing now, is actually good for you, makes you more productive.
4:11am
that getting up away from the computer screen is more productive because sitting there all day staring blankly at the computer screen, you don't get any work done, turns out. >>tucker: it turns out when you work you get work done. and when you go on-line and buy new shoes on e bay or blue fly you're not. >>alisyn: okay! you can't have any fun in your office. >>tucker: some of the most creative things are born out of being away from the desk and walking. you like to go fly-fishing? i'm sure some of your most creative ideas -- >> look, we have a bar in my office. we have keg beer on tap. we have a ping-pong table. but i don't -- that's fine. we do that in exchange for paying our employees incredibly low salaries. i don't delude myself into thinking beer and ping-pong makes them more productive. google has their 20% rule. they want their employees

4:13am

burner, a move to delay the employer mandate for another year. what's next? representative tim murphy, chairman of the commerce subcommittee on oversight and investigations joins us now. congressman, nice to see you this morning. >> great to be with you. >> greta van susteren wrote an interesting opinion piece about this very thing. how long did the administration know it was going to delay this mandate? why wait until right before the holiday to do such a thing? was the administration planning this for months? is that what you're trying to get to the bottom of? >> it's an interesting thing they used when news was going quiet before the 4th of july weekend? why bring it up then? perhaps to bury the story. we had been asking this for several months in the oversight investigation subcommittee. what we found was there was many problems with the health care bill, but every time we brought someone from the administration to explain or perhaps tell us what they were doing to handle the problems, it looked a lot like that scene in animal house where
4:18am
kevin bacon is waving his hands in front of the crowd saying remain calm, all is well, even though we knew there were problems going on. >>clayton: valerie jarrett's, the president's advisor -- alisyn is questioning whether kevin bacon was in animal house. valerie jarrett has said this is going to help. this mandate delay will actually help small businesses get their stuff, get their paper work together, implement all of this stuff. valerie jarrett says don't worry, this is good for the economy and the government. >> we wish the administration would work with us. they passed this health care bill without any of our input and now they're making several modifications to it. i would certainly like to know what else they have in mind. for example, if businesses have a waiver with regard to they don't have to pay a penalty for the next year but they encourage businesses to go ahead and
4:19am
do this, what does this mean to the individual? the individual mandate is still in place. what happens if an employee does not have insurance? will they end up being spobs for a fine? -- responsible for a fine? the administration announced some will have that fine waived for a year. there are other questions in place. we don't really have the exchanges ready yet. these were supposed to be ready october 1. i'm not sure the whole health care bill is ready to go at at all. >>clayton: the exchanges, we were hearing from the administration, don't worry about it, there's not going to be too many people on the exchanges because of the mandate. now does this throw more people on the exchanges that are not yet ready? >> more people may come on them. i think that is a big concern. in some cases, small businesses, the number of choices you may have is limited to one. there is some question of how much the exchanges will really save money? a recent announcement there will be a 3.5% tax levied on the exchanges which will be passed on to the consumers.
4:20am
i think it will be another $180 a year or so for an individual. we don't really know what's all in this and we're only a couple months away from implementation. i think what's happening here is with all these problems, the question we have is why now? why not work with us on this? is this also related to perhaps the 2014 election with so many problems occurring that they're looking to avoid other political problems. >>clayton: representative tim murphy, thanks for educating on all of this this morning and helping me brush up on my "animal house" trivial. coming up, he stole more than half a million dollars on legos and now he can spend a decade behind bars. these college girls aren't hitting the beach this summer. they're hitting the road in an ice cream truck. how they're using a small business to pay off their debts. ♪ ♪ ♪

4:47am
rates in canada are lower than they are in the united states. the highest in canada 29%. highest rate here in the united states 39%. corporately, 15% corporate tax rate. in the united states highest tax rate in the world, 35%. for small business it gets even better because most small businesses, most companies, ostensibly they create 70% of the new jobs in america, they pay at the personal rate, small business at 39% tax. that is before we get to sarbanes, oxley, dodd-frank. >>tucker: how did this happen? where do we get this idea that canada is socialist and america is capitalist? blame francis scott key. the truth is no match for a slogan. we keep saying the land of the free and keep putting it on banners and flags, but the fact is incrementally these things
4:48am
happen. i've learned more, talking about taxes, the united states demands their businesses, families, business associates file and pay taxes, even if they don't live in america. the only major country in the world that says we don't care if you spend one second on our soil, we expect you to file your taxes and pay them. taxation without representation, i could have sworn i read that someplace. >>tucker: th he -- theo, that is stunning. we can still beat canada in a pedal fight. dual citizen, that is an interesting and disturbing set of facts. thanks. the prosecution rests its case in the zimmerman trial after intense two weeks of testimony. how did it go? a fair and balanced debate coming up. >> the running of the turtles or more like slowly

4:53am
of proving reasonable doubt, which is ironic and funny because that's not the prosecution's job. >>alisyn: how did they do that? >> you know how they did it? they had rested. the prosecution has rested. if the jury had to make a decision today, if the defense did not put on a single witness, i think the jury has to come back with an acquittal because the state did not prove guilt beyond a reasonable charge on a murder 2 charge. they didn't do it. >>alisyn: do you agree, david? >> i agree with that assessment but as a prosecutor you've got to find ways to pull it out. you don't pick your witnesses from central casting. the key here to negate the self-defense, give up on the murder and have the lesser included manslaughter. that is what no one is talking about, manslaughter, culpable tpheg skwrepblgs. you can prove -- negligence. >> they would have to ignore the theory of self-defense in order to get to manslaughter. you can't. i think the prosecution has
4:54am
proven the defense in the self-defense claim. >> i'm not sure about that. under this theory i have, the murder's out the window. i agree with you. >>alisyn: can they pivot, even though he has been charged with murder? >> absolutely. under florida law the manslaughter is lesser included. it's automatic. you have to request that from the judge. i believe that is going to happen in this case. they'll negate the self-defense and they'll be stuck with the manslaughter which could be interesting. >> judge, you put george zimmerman on the stand? >> i say no way. we don't have to put him on the stand now because the videotapes or audio confessions or admissions by george zimmerman, the state put into evidence for him. he was not subject to cross-examination by doing it that way. in those three audio tapes or videotapes, he basically lays out a perfect self-defense claim. why risk putting him on the stand and be subject to cross-examination? you never what's going to happen. it's not necessary. >> i'm not sure this is a
4:55am
perfect self-defense claim. zimmerman was pursuing trayvon that night. there was a fight that broke out. i'm not sure based on any of the evidence -- >> based on the hedge head -- head injuries, based on the broken nose. the big question is who was screaming on the 911 tapes. >> i do believe we may have a manslaughter here, but the prosecution has to come to play at summations and put this all together and show the jury how reckless zimmerman was acting that night. >>alisyn: do you think it matters there was contradictory assessment of who was screaming on the 911 tapes? >> i think that will be a wash. right now we have two mothers, one saying it's my son, the other one saying it's her son. the jury is going to have to disregard that. when the jury disregards evidence, that is a point in favor of the defense because the defense only needs to prove reasonable doubt. >>alisyn: we've heard your theory, david. you think they'll go for the lesser included charge
4:56am
for manslaughter. what do you think the outcome will be? >> i don't think the jury can ignore self-defense. if you find zimmerman acted in self-defense, you don't get to manslaughter. you only get to manslaughter if you're kroeuplsing in a way you -- compromising in a way you shouldn't be compromising. >> i don't think the jury will come back with manslaughter but i think if they're going to win the case that is the charge they have to go with. >> thanks for the debate. an important warning this morning from one of the nation's most popular grocery stores. how bad cheese has killed one person and landed others in the hospital. we'll tell you which one. muslim brotherhood is returning fire in egypt after their president has been tossed from power. has the obama administration taken the wrong side in this developing civil war? governor mike huckabee here with his take at the top of with his take at the top of the hour.

5:05am
of violent demonstrations there. connor powell is live in cairo with the very latest on the developments at this hour. good morning, connor. >> good morning, clayton. egypt is officially not under martial law, but there is a heavy military presence here in cairo and really across the country there are a lot of roads blocked, bridges that are closed. military troops and vehicles all over the city, all over the country trying to keep the peace. already we are hearing that a coptic christian was shot dead by a gunman in the sinai region in the western part of egypt. we're also hearing that at least 30 people were killed over the violence last night. hundreds if not thousands more were injured as police and military clashed of pro-morsi, promuslim brotherhood. fighting was primitive fighting at times with sticks and stones and hand-to-hand combat on many of the streets. it was violence, intense fighting. that is the level of anger
5:06am
and feeling here in egypt right now. both sides are very, very angry at each other. the muslim brotherhood is still maintaining a peaceful sit-in protest outside the republican guard headquarters where we believe president morsi -- former president morsi is being held. they are calling on supporters to take to the streets again tonight and tomorrow and to maintain this protest. we heard general sisi met with the new president mansour what we're not hearing is anyone in the new government meeting with the muslim brotherhood leaders. it seems tensions are still high and are not going anywhere. >>clayton: we'll check back a little bit later in the show. meanwhile we want to bring in governor mike huckabee from little rock, arkansas, who has been monitoring development in egypt as well. governor, great to see you. >> happy 4th of july weekend to all of you.
5:07am
>>clayton: what should we think about what is happening in egypt? what should our policy be? >> we've got to reevaluate what policy led us here. this is an administration that gave tanks to a president who said the jews were bloodsuckers and called them descendants of apes and pigs. we should have demanded an apology, demanded retraction before we gave military hardware to someone who is that hostile to a neighbor he has been at peace with or his country has been at peace with for the past 35 years. this was an outrageous thing that our government seemed to look the other way. >>alisyn: governor, now that morsi is out and we're watching the turmoil and the unrest and the violence there, is this really a good thing for the united states? how do we capitalize on what's happened now? >> disruption is never a good thing, but it may be a good thing that the muslim brotherhood has been brushed back by the people of egypt. the people of egypt are good and wonderful people. for many, many years
5:08am
they've lived with a version of islam that was not radical. they lived lives that had western influence. if they wanted to be very strict phupls -- muslims they were able to do that. there was also allowance for christians in egypt. under the muslim brotherhood churches have been burned, christians persecuted. even those who do not accept the more radical form of islam have been brutalized. the only good thing is the muslim brotherhood has been exposed for the brutal regime they are and hopefully they are not going to be back in power. >>clayton: governor, we're getting breaking news into our studio that a christian priest in egypt has been shot and killed. just now we're learning this here. we'll have more details on that as it emerges in cairo. it is still unfolding at this hour. i have to get your perspective now, governor, because we've seen all of these protests. we've seen signs anti-obama. they have been linking
5:09am
president obama and the obama administration to the muslim brotherhood seen as being too cozy with the muslim brotherhood. how in the world did that happen? >> i think it happened because of the naivete of this president who went to cairo a few years ago. i honestly believe he thought he was so persuasive he could charm the snake back into the basket. clearly he can't. he's dealing with something that is not going to be resolved by rhetoric, even his brilliant and lofty rhetoric. this is a president who has got to understand that we face a very serious threat in jihad. and jihad breeds terrorism all over the world. it creates hezbollah, hamas. these are not people who want to sit down, drink tea and make nice with us. these are people who want to kill us. they want to kill every last one of us. they want to kill the other muslims who do not agree with their radical version of it. until this president understands that this is a serious, a clear and present danger to every living being on the planet earth, then i think we're going to continue to see an administration making huge

foreign policy mistakes. >>tucker: i wonder if we have time to reorient the lens through which we see foreign policy itself. one of the criteria we look for in deciding whether or not to support another country is is the government democratically elected. this is what the bush administration argued when we pushed for elections in gaza, for example, with terrible results. shouldn't we evaluate other countries purely in terms of whether they're nice to the united states, whether their existence helps the united states? shouldn't our foreign policy be about helping our own country first and foremost? >> you know, we really had a schizophrenic foreign policy. we say we want them to be democratically elected, then why have we been such good friend with saudi arabia? you see signs of democracy there? zero. we've had a completely inconsistent foreign policy. not just with obama. let's be fair. republicans have played the same game. what we need to do is to real the purpose of the
5:11am
american government is to serve america and its people and its interests. it is not to placate and not to somehow try to believe that it's going to be loved by everybody else in the world. in fact, right now i don't ever remember a time when we've been held in more contempt around the world when you have the french foreign minister dressing down the ambassador at a 4th of july party over spying in public. this is not exactly what i call prime time for the united states image. >>alisyn: governor, very quickly, you think that we keep our billion-plus dollars flowing to egypt now? >> i think we let them know that it's going to be conditioned upon whether they're going to be tolerant of the christians in egypt and other muslims, the secular side of egypt. if not, why should we continue to give them money? i know the rationale is we've got to keep them on our good side. what good side? i don't see the good side coming on here. i see riots in the streets and people getting killed and rights being crushed and women being treated

>> the obama administration making a major and possibly very political move this week. they announced a delay in the employer mandate of obamacare until after the 2014 mid term election. that means they will not fine businesses for failing to sign up for obamacare. republicans, of course, still plan to campaign on the issue of obamacare. they say democrats should be forced to defend the health care law. we're back again with governor mike huckabee, who is possibly the coolest and wisest head to ask the
5:16am
obvious question which is is this a political winner for the obama people? >> no. i loved it when you said it may be a political move. >>tucker: it's early. i'm trying to be diplomatic. >> for you, tucker, that's very good. i'm very proud of you. here's what you need to brace yourself for. here's why the obama people shouldn't get too overconfident they made a smart move. yes, they've taken off the implementation for after the 2014 elections for big businesses but guess who it's still on? individuals. you know who is going to get hit the hardest? young people. you know why. most young people didn't have insurance or it was so expensive because they got -- so inexpensive because they got maybe 1,000 a year. under obamacare they will be paying $4,000 to $5,000 a year or more. this is the group of people who have the least amount of money and they will get hit the hardest with the
5:17am
biggest premium increases. that will hit them in 2014. all of this love of how thank you, obama, is going to be like what, obama? what did you do to us? why are we paying out this money and you're making me break the law by not spending up the rest of my wallet? >>clayton: the politics side pushing it past the 2014 elections so there's not jobs lost as a result of it. it helps the democrats arguably. the substantive side of this is also interesting to me which is the money side of this. the c.b.o. in 2012 said what makes this make money are the penalties that the obamacare would put on small businesses that aren't paying this mandate. the obama administration was sort of hanging its hat on the amount of money that would be flowing into the coffers as a result of it. you take that off the table and it doesn't seem to be all that solvent, does it? >> no, it doesn't. remember that obamacare can only work when very, very healthy people buy into the system and buy insurance they're not actually going to use. here's what happens.
5:18am
younger people who don't need a great deal of health coverage will be subsidizing their grandparents. i know that kids love their grandparents, but most of them, just as they're getting out with huge student loan bills, starting to try to get their families going, buy a house and a car, they're not interested right now in helping grandma pay for her dental implants. what we've got is a situation where when the reality of obamacare hits -- and a lot of young people won't do it -- this house of cards collapses because there isn't enough foundation money to pay for it. without total participation, it cannot economically work. the numbers don't lie about this. >>alisyn: so, governor, what do you think is going to happen? is the employer mandate really going to happen a year from now? >> i don't think so. i think the democrats are going to get spooked again when they start understanding how ominous this is going to hit the younger voters that they depend on. i think you're going to see a similar action that they will delay the
5:19am
implementation. i think it's a great opportunity for republicans to remind americans that this is owned solely, completely by the democrats who voted for something they didn't read and who actually said, as nancy pelosi so famously reminded us, we will know what's in the bill after we pass it. now we know, and we don't like it. it's time to get rid of obamacare and get rid of the people who shoved it up our nose. >>clayton: governor, who's on your show tonight, 8 p.m.? >> we've got a fascinating insight into a program called blue ways. it's a program that's being kind of very quietly launched by the department of interior, and we focus on the white river blue ways that by the way, late on wednesday afternoon just before 4 of july the department of interior pulled away. i think because they knew we were investigating it. we've got a feature tonight. worth watching. hope you'll see it. >>tucker: i will watch

5:25am
ranger? >> johnny depp, directed by gore vadinsky. this is based on the popular radio show turned into a television vo in -- show in the 40s and 50 50s. the positive thing is the beginning 30 minutes and ending 30 minutes are solid. the action works. it's that middle hour and a half that is absolutely dreadful. it is so long, it's overly violent, it's too confusing. this is a pg-13 disney film, and parents are always asking me is a pg-13 movie okay for my kids. not this one. this is one of the most violent pg-13 movies i've seen. johnny depp is only playing jack sparrow playing tonto. it is not like jack sparrow the entire time.
5:26am

5:27am
-- the main reason is those minions. the first one had a great character development becoming a bad guy to a good guy. this one doesn't live up to the first one but it is still a solid family entertainment movie. the first two acts of the movie are a little slow but the minions elevate it. once you get to the third act and get the message, the comedy works, the action is great. i love the music. i gave it a three and a half out of five. it is worth seeing in 3-d. stay through the credits. it is a three and a half out of five. >>tucker: what are your top five of the year so far? >> this is an interesting list. these are my favorite movies of the year. i understand my first one is a little bit divisive and clayton, i know you disagree with me. i love man of steel. i've seen it three times. a brilliant action movie.
5:28am
i just love it so much. i gave it four and a half out of five. number two is called the place beyond the pines. this is a movie starring bradley cooper and ryan gosling about legacy and passing down to your children. brilliant film, d.v.d. on august 6. my number three movie came out this friday, called the way, way back. a coming of age story, i love that movie. number four, i only like this movie because of the film making and the music. it's called spring breakers. not for kids whatsoever. but i enjoyed the film making element. number five, this is my turn your brain off, sit down in the theater and enjoy movie. fast and furious 6. i had fun with it. it is a fun turn your brain off action movie. everyone needs one of those every once in a while. >>clayton: i'm a big fan of terrible movies. what was your worst movie of the year so far? >> so far this year the
